You're so right, a really good flight can be spoiled in your mind by a bad landing. Some of the problem is not considering how the actual aircraft lands. Many heavy aircraft fly through the landing, not really stalling.

Yes, itís what I mentioned in the linked thread. The best Acro in the world will not be remembered and will be for naught if you have to walk out and pick up all the pieces after a botched landing.
